Let's say I have a map created on ArcGIS desktop and I publish it as a feature service to ArcGIS online. In the ArcGIS online interface, I can filter that feature service layer into three separate layers. I can then take those layers and use them for a WAB application. I need to customize the WAB app though, so I downloaded all the files and code that builds my app. But do you know how I can filter the original feature layer using JavaScript instead? Specifically, I have all my files for my web app stored locally, but I'm not sure which file I'd need to do that filtering in.

Jugal,

  Not sure what you mean by filtering but the MapManager.js is the file that handles all things dealing with the map.

Hey Robert,

It basically has to do with this thread​. Essentially, I tried going the Maplex route mentioned by Adrian and Benjamin but I'm having trouble transferring the Maplex configuration from the desktop side to the AGOL side, so I'm seeing if I can solve this problem programmatically.
